It could have been a Twilight Zone episode
25 September 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

What a good surprise to see Betty Davis in such an item. I did not know she played in TV épisodes actually, and believe it or not, she's as good as she was in the old Warner movies. A tremendous story here, with this story just out of TWILIGHT ZONE series, where a woman doesn't find her house as she left it just a couple of minutes earlier. She finds her house with another furniture and with people inside she has never seen before. She calls the police, a cop arrives and begins to ask questions around. All seems to collapse for our female lead who has the feeling to become totally crazy. She tries to explain to the policeman who she really is, that her belongings all over the place have simply disappeared...Intriguing tale, I assure you, folks, a very good, solid story that glues you to your coach. A taut suspenser. Directed by the prolific TV maker and Hollywood vet Johnny Brahm.
